Jun Wang - Biography#

Jun Wang is the Chair Professor of Computational Intelligence in the Department of Computer Science and School of Data Science at City University of Hong Kong. Prior to this position, he held various academic positions at Dalian University of Technology, Case Western Reserve University, University of North Dakota, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He also held various short-term visiting positions at US Air Force Armstrong Laboratory, Universite Catholique de Louvain, RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan, Dalian University of Technology, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Changjiang Chair Professor), etc.

He received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering and an M.S. degree from Dalian University of Technology in China and his Ph.D. degree from Case Western Reserve University in the USA.

His current research interests include primarily broadly perceives systems and control, notably the use of artificial intelligence tools and techniques for modeling, decision making and control, in particular the use of neural networks. He published over 250 journal papers, 15 book chapters, 11 edited books, and numerous conference papers in these areas, including many contributions across multiple disciplines of science and technology.

He served as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics (2014 - 2019). He also served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks (1999-2009), IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics and its predecessor (2003-2013), and IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics: Part C (2002 - 2005), as a member of the editorial board of Neural Networks (2012-2014), the editorial advisory board of International Journal of Neural Systems (2006 - 2013. He was an organizer of many international conferences such as the General Chair of the 13th/25th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (2006/2018), the 2008 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence, and a Program Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (2012). He is an IEEE Fellow, IAPR Fellow, CAAI Fellow. He was a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (2010-2012, 2014-2016) and the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society (2017 - 2021). In addition, he served as President of Asia Pacific Neural Network Assembly (APNNA) in 2006 and many organizations such as IEEE Fellow Committee; IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Awards and Fellow Committees; IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society Board of Governors, Awards and Fellow Committees.

He is an IEEE Fellow and IAPR Fellow, and the recipient of the APNNA Outstanding Achievement Award in 2011, IEEE CIS Neural Networks Pioneer Award in 2014, CAAI Wu Wenjun AI Achievement Award in 2016, and IEEE SMCS Norbert Wiener Award and Outstanding Contribution Award in 2019, among other distinctions. In particular, the IEEE CIS Neural Networks Pioneer Award and IEEE SMCS Norbert Wiener Award are very prestigious in the IEEE communities.
